Located next to the peace Square and the Bomb museum in the underground and just like its counterpart in Hiroshima, the hall is a place for memory and prayer for those who died as a result of the atomic bombardment of 1945 (Photos, memories and relationships with this event). There are also information on international cooperation and the exchange of actions on the treatment of patients with nuclear accidents. Information is available in a dozen languages.
